About Tatiana Tate:
More than ever, monstrously talented young women are rising through the ranks of jazz instrumentalists, challenging the male-dominated status quo. Tatiana Tate is at the top of the list of rising stars. This North Long Beach, California-based Trumpeter and Composer has built a resume that would be the envy of artists three times her age.
Tatiana began her musical journey as a drummer at age 5 and later moving to Trumpet at age 8. She was the first African American Female Drum Major of Long Beach Poly High School and is an NAACP Act-So Champion. She was Soloist of the Colburn Conservatory of Music Jazz Workshop Band, Soloist of the Arturo Sandoval All-Star Youth Jazz Band, and Tatiana performed at the first Annual Grammy Museum Gala along with Boys 2 Men, Kelly Roland, Smokey Robinson and Michael Bolton.
She has performed at many festivals and concert venues throughout the country, Washington D.C. Women In Jazz Festival, Next Generation Jazz Festival, Gardena Jazz Festival and many many more. Tatiana has shared the stage with David Sanborn, Clora Bryant, Brian Culbertson, Brian Simpson, Jeanette Harris, Chaka Khan and Ronnie Laws. Inspired by Jazz artists like Clora Bryant, Freddy Hubbard and Kamasi Washington, Tatiana relishes free improvisation, avant-garde experimentation and a melodic approach to her distinctive tone, mixing spiritual, afro-futurist jazz with hip-hop rhythms and global influences. Tatiana has a 4.55 GPA, is a Sophomore at California State University Fullerton, majoring in Jazz Studies and Commercial Music Composition, minoring in Japanese.
This Award-wining artist is band leader of the Tatiana Tate Quartet, a group of masterfully talented musicians ready to prove Jazz is alive and well with the next generation.
